Sending out your “Save the Date”

Sending out your “Save the Date”

We’re getting married! Save the date!

The feeling of starting a new life with your soon-to-be is something one cannot explain. It feels like the world is right at your feet and you’re floating on cloud nine; in the arms of your one true love… So, when sending out “Save the Date” cards, one would want to make sure your wedding date will be the celebration of the year! To do this, a simple note in the mail with your wedding date on it just won’t do the trick.

You need to be creative when doing this. I know, I know, you’re practically jumping out of your skin right now to shout “I’m getting married!” to anyone who might listen. But if you’re planning a celebration that will “wow” your guests, why not start off the countdown with a little something extra?

Before digging into the crafting bag to start creating, take a minute to go through the following rules of etiquette when it comes to saving the date:

  • Send save the date invites six months before the ceremony. Any earlier and you run the risk of your date or venue changing.
  • If you want to save money, only send them to out-of-town guests and people you know will need to plan far in advance.
